ARABIAN TEA JASMINE (JASMINUM SAMBAC 'MAID OF ORLEANS')
As sweet as the smell of success. But easier to come by. This everblooming Jasmine has bushy growth and does particularly well on windowsills. We find that the fragrance of the white flowers somehow clears the air. So set one of these plants on the sill, set yourself in a nearby chair and...easy now...breathe in. You will discover what others have discovered: the clarity of this fragrance is unrivaled in all of nature. It is well known in Asia for its use in teas and religious observances. Also known as the 'Arabian Tea Jasmine,' it is the National Flower of the Philippines, where it is known as 'Sampaguita.' Outside it is hardy to Zone 8 and higher.
Full sun, grows to 1-2' in container, minimum temperature 60 degrees, everbloomer.
The plant you will receive is growing in a 4" pot. It is about 6" tall.

After waiting a while with no results, I moved it to sit under a plant light, and gave it African Violet food. Voila! Tiny green buds appeared after about two weeks, and they -slowly- got larger and turned white.
Two weeks ago, the first bud opened to reveal a small, pristine white, delicate flower. The fragrance was heavenly! Everyone in the family stopped to inhale deeply every time we went past the pot.
When the blossom fell off the following day, I floated it in water, and it continued to provide fragrance for several days.
Other buds are swelling, and a total of five have opened including the first one. Each flower stays on the plant for about 24 hours, some a little more, some a little less. Yesterday, I had two OPEN at once. They fell off this morning, but another one opened.
Best of all, as the current crop of buds swell and open, I see new tiny green buds starting from branches that used to be bare.
The plant is easy to care for (don't drown it, don't let it dry out; give it good light; feed it lightly and infrequently with something like African Violet fertilizer), and is beautiful just for its leaves and overall shape. The flowers, when they come, are heavenly.
I've ordered several other plants from Hirt's, and all of them have arrived in excellent condition. This is the first one that I've gotten to bloom.
I was sooo wrong!
The plant arrived well packed, just under a foot in height and I transplanted it to a larger pot immediately. Even though I was told afterwards that a Jasmine won't blossom if it isn't root bound enough. This may be true, but the plant arrived healthy and strong enough that we've had buds opening every night and filling the room with fragrance. Amazing how the fragrance of such a little bud can fill an entire room.
I am so thoroughly happy with this plant and I feel like I got an amazing deal.
I have attached a picture of my plant (a little less than a month since I purchased it).

Loved it. But killed it when I planted it outside with full blaring sun. Buying another one. Recommend shade or against a wall that gets half day sun. Read morePublished 19 days ago by LMarie
